Helping Bereaved Children, 3rd Edition


Product Description

by Nancy Boyd Webb, Editor


Now in a completely revised and updated third edition, this popular casebook and text demonstrates a range of therapeutic approaches and interventions for children who have experienced loss. Helping Bereaved Children is solidly grounded in developmental psychology. The principles that guide interventions as well as detailed descriptions of the helping process are clearly and concisely provided by thirteen experienced and expert practitioners.

Readers will find a broad range of topics related to death in the family, and death in the school and community, as well as five chapters of specific methods and interventions to help children. These methods include play therapy, bereavement groups for families with HIV/AIDS, art therapy, and storytelling.

Helping Bereaved Children wisely includes chapters on helping children after violence in schools and communities, sudden death in schools and the traumatic death of friends. An especially useful resource section is included as well as an instructive chapter with clear guidelines on how to help children bereaved by terrorism, especially those effected by September 11, 2001. Practitioners will find the tripartite crisis model assessment tool and references to current research invaluable. Self-care for practitioners is addressed.

Paperback, 408 pages.
